August 6th was another special day for Hands and Feet Project as Melusa (pronounced Melissa) joined our family here at Cyvadier. Melusa Rabel (about 8 months old) has no mother and her father deserted her when she was 3 months old. She spent the last 5 months in a hand to mouth situation with her aunt who is only 16 years old. The aunt just couldn’t take care of her any more. She was glad to be relieved of this chore and soon left for Port-Au-Prince to live with a friend. Melusa is adorable. After being treated for scabies she will start to regain some hair and color that was lost to malnutrition. She joins 4 others at about the same age. All of them are standing holding on to things. Pray for us and the nannys as all these little ones start to walk!!! This little girl is not yet sponsored. Contact Joel if you’d like to help. Drex, Jo and Michelle
